      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Im planning a trip for my wife and I next spring/early summer. I was wondering if some of you veterans could give me some advice on what would typically be the optimal time for Cass. Ive never fished it and would love to hit for a good trip. Also your opinions on a good place to lodge. i appreciate it, thanks guys.

Clam,

I would say your best advice is to check with Brian from First Choice Guide Service. He can punch it up and tell you when the best time would be. He has been fishing Cass for 16 years and guiding for 6 years. I would say you should book him for a day or a half day, you can also split your day and do half in the morning and half at night. That might be the ticket. I can tell you that he will put you on fish and show you how to fish Cass Lake. If you mention to him that Windy sent you, he will give you a 10% discount off his already low prices. He is a very nice young family man who really knows the lake. He also has his dad who fishes the lake and can take people out to guide. Give him a call and tell him I sent you. You won't be disappointed.

Recent years have been excellant through Mid June. Every spring is a little different depending on water depth, flow in and out of the feed lakes and water temperature.

This year we had a great trip the week after opener. Fish were everywhere and were cooperating with a jig and minnow presentation. I would suggest getting there sometime in May if you can, if not early June.

Good Luck.

Clamhead,

What species are you most likely after? Panfish, bass, walleye, or my favorite muskie? Different species are more active at different times of the year! Like Windy said, give Brian a call, he is a multi-species guide who is really in-tune with what is happening on the Cass Lake chain. Just my two cents, I go up to Cass in September after school is back in session. All species are more receptive during this period, IMO. Good luck!

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.
